COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Sorachi Blond är kryddad med den japanska humlesorten Sorachi som ger en rik doft av citrus. Just humlen i denna brygd är odlad i USA. Den komplexa aromen förstärks med dofter av enbär och koriander. Jästen är av belgiskt ursprung. Dock är det mer välhumlat än vad den belgiska traditionen bjuder. Utöver detta innehåller ölet flera olika sorters kornmalt och vetemalt. Ölet är fylligt med stor rondör och inte filtrerat. Det passar utmärkt till både ljust kött, fågel, stekt fisk och naturligtvis i ensamt majestät.

En fantastisk smakupplevelser. Söt, fyllig, typisk belgisk karaktär en blond som fyller hela gommen med glädje. En 2010

Överaskande bra. Jag tycker den är mer belgisk blond eller kanske Saison/blond än något annat. Humlen är väldigt nedtonad. Doft av belgisk jäst och koriander. Smaken bekräftar doftintrycken: syrlig, söt, fruktig, koriander, jäst. Vad roligt att ett sådant här öl bryggs i Sverige och så bra dessutom. Skulle behöva testa det mot ett par bra belgiska blonda för att bekräfta det men jag tror att Sorachi skulle stå sig bra. Lite mer än en Saison, men inte så kraftig och söt som många blonda kan vara. Perfekt en sommarkväll.

Hermod (3309) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2010
Draught @Pikkulintu. Poured slightly hazy orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty, hard to put in words all the aromas. But really nice on the nose. Flavor is lemon, spices, yeast and hops. Bitter finish. Quite nice, very drinkable.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2010
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 30 May 2010) Pale amber colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of orange, apricots and a touch of yeast. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, orange, a hint of yeast and a spicy bitterness in the finish. Slightly more than medium body, fairly dry. Interesting, tasty and well made.

Bottled. Hazy amber, small head. Soapy coriander aroma. Mid sweet with buckwhea, marzipan and butter, medium body. Lightly grainy with herbal spices and marmelade. An interesting and elegant Belgo IPA.

gnoff (7934) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2010
Draught at GW68, Stockholm
On August 4, 2010
Hazy copper color, fluffy lasting light brown head. Phenolic, sweet, light metallic taste; fruity, bitter, herbal, cream aftertaste.
Starts off like a Belgian Blonde, finishes almost like an IPA. A bit sweeter with a less dry finish and for me it would’ve been excellent! Still good though.
Phenolic, creamy, malty scent. Also some banana esters in the smell. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Some acidity in the taste also, bringing a bit of astringency to the mouthfeel.
It’s a bit "spretig" (all over the place), not balanced in the way I appreciate it most. But all in all a rather nice beer.
I’m not sure what style I’d call this one, perhaps a "Belgian style IPA"? Tone down the bitterness, loose the acidty, add some more sweetness and caramel, and it would, for my taste, turn from rather nice to very nice.
For those that don’t care for "true" Belgian Blondes, the smaller notes of phenoles with the higher bitterness level might be a true hit?
Not a session beer, for me at least, in drinkability, more of a farily slow drinker, but not down to only a sipper either.

Christian (11217) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2011
Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, herbs, freshly baked bread and caramel. Dry herbal and malty flavour. The malt tastes really fresh and fine, while the hops just taste....sorachi

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2011
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Duften er sorachi men ikke så dominerende. Let dild, men gæren blander sig. Smagen er frisk og igen sorachi men ikke fuldkommen. Bedre i IPA. Fin øl, men lidt højt prismærke.

ekstedt (5484) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Shady golden with a medium white head. Bready malt aroma with some tropical fruits, and a touch of coconut vanilla which made me think there was some barrel aging going on here. Medium bodied with soft texture. Dry and well balanced with low to medium bitterness. Quite good.

Rune (8189) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2010
Draught, 300ml, perfectly served lightly chilled at Glenfiddich Warehouse in Gamla Stan. Near clear, amber coloured body under a slowly fading, white tophead. Smooth aroma of died fruits and herbal hops. Fresh fruity taste with hints of dried fruits breaking through supported by lighter notes of caramel malts. Lingering fruit bitterness to the ending. Medium bodied. Quite enjoyable drinking before mid day (Stockholm, 27.07.2010).
